Managing Agile

Author: Alan Moran

ISBN:

View: 329

This book examines agile approaches from a management perspective by focusing on matters of strategy, implementation, organization and people. It examines the turbulence of the marketplace and business environment in order to identify what role agile management has to play in coping with such change and uncertainty. Based on observations, personal experience and extensive research, it clearly identifies the fabric of the agile organization, helping managers to become agile leaders in an uncertain world. The book opens with a broad survey of agile strategies, comparing and contrasting some of the major methodologies selected on the basis of where they lie on a continuum of ceremony and formality, ranging from the minimalist technique-driven and software engineering focused XP, to the pragmatic product-project paradigm that is Scrum and its scaled counterpart SAFe®, to the comparatively project-centric DSDM. Subsequently, the core of the book focuses on DSDM, owing to the method’s comprehensive elaboration of program and project management practices. This work will chiefly be of interest to all those with decision-making authority within their organizations (e.g., senior managers, line managers, program, project and risk managers) and for whom topics such as strategy, finance, quality, governance and risk management constitute a daily aspect of their work. It will, however, also be of interest to those readers in advanced management or business administration courses (e.g., MBA, MSc), who wish to engage in the management of agile organizations and thus need to adapt their skills and knowledge accordingly.

As a first step towards applying Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Andreas Freitag investigates the end-to-end applicability of business capabilities in the M&A process of a corporate buyer organization. Enterprises still struggle to manage M&A efficiently. A significant number of merger projects do not reach the expected goals or fail completely. Therefore, companies attempt to improve their M&A capability by establishing the required skills, organization, processes and methods. EAM is an approach for business and IT planning, promising to contribute to the success of business transformation challenges such as M&A. Business capability models are an essential element of a state of the art EAM approach. They are frequently used as a starting point to work collaboratively with business and IT stakeholders.
